  • 8. VISION A community project that continues a County, State, and National awareness of the need for public outdoor recre- ation while promoting “open space”, health benefits, eco- nomic enhancement, environmental and historical educa- tion and preservation. GOALS To develop a Feasibility Study for Phase Two of the Li- gonier Valley Trail & Bikeway to guide future design im- provements and grant funding initiatives. This study will dramatically expand the existing Phase One trail network in all directions and connect residents and visitors to re- gional recreational, commercial, historical, and cultural amenities. PROCESS • prepare base mapping to study potential trail alignments • evaluate existing conditions and constraints • identify a primary route for the trail, and alternate routings • identify property acquisition for the trail right-of-way • prepare planning level cost estimates, and construction schedules • determine regulatory approvals and permits PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT As part of the process, a public meeting was held at the Ligonier Township Municipal Building in Ligonier on Mon- day, December 6, 2010. The evening was kicked off by David Kahley, CEO of the Progress Fund, who talked about the economic benefit of trail towns along the Great Allegheny Passage. He was followed by Todd Brant, Landscape Architecture Manager of GAI Consultants, who presented the preliminary find- ings of the feasibility study. The group engaged in a lively discussion following the presentations. Feedback from the community has been incorporated into this final report.Above: Phase One of the Ligonier Valley Trail & BikewayBelow: Public meeting held on December 6, 2010 Ligonier Valley Trail & Bikeway Feasibility Study — Ligonier, Pennsylvania | 7

TheValley is comprised of the Borough of Ligonier and Ligo-nier Township. The Township entirely surrounds, but doesnot include the Borough. Their combined population isroughly 8,700 according to the 2000 census.Nearby municipalities include Latrobe and Youngstownabout ten miles to the northwest, Wilpen to the northeastapproximately four miles, Laughlintown three miles to thesoutheast, and Rector about five miles to the south.Fort Ligonier was built by British forces in 1758 during theFrench and Indian War, and the town was later settled in Ligonier, Pennsylvania1817. The Borough was incorporated in 1834 followed bythe Township in 1882.10 | Ligonier Valley Trail & Bikeway Feasibility Study — Ligonier, Pennsylvania
  • 12. ek Cre Mill Lo ya lha nn a Ligonier Cr ee k WATERWAYS Being situated in a valley, Ligonier is traversed by two sig- nificant water bodies. The Loyalhanna Creek adjoins with the Conemaugh River to form the Kiskiminetas River, and flows northwest from Ligonier towards Latrobe. Its flow is regulated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Latrobe Reservoir. Mill Creek generally flows in a west-southwest direction through the project study area towards its con- fluence with Loyalhanna Creek about one mile west of Li- gonier. Both creeks are popular trout fishing destinations. Since waterways are also obstructions, it is important to note the bridges spanning them (red circles above). Loy- alhanna Creek can be crossed at Peters Road, Route 711,Mill Creek near Weller Field Two Mile Run Road, and Clark Hollow Road. Mill Creek is bridged at Route 30, West Vincent Street, Route 711 at Peoples Road, and Route 711 at Brigade Lane. Ligonier Valley Trail & Bikeway Feasibility Study — Ligonier, Pennsylvania | 11

The street network within Ligonier Borough is a compact grid of two-lane neighborhood streets, some with on-street parking, and alleys. Route 30 is the main east-west route, and is primarily a four-lane road. Approximately 1,000 feet east of its inter- section with East Main Street, Route 30 transitions to two lanes. Route 711 is the primary north-south route, running from Seward through Ligonier (North and South Market Street within the Borough) and terminating in Connells- ville. The Pennsylvania Turnpike (Interstate 70/76) can beRoute 711 North near Ligonier Camp & Conference Center accessed from Route 711 south of Ligonier at Donegal. Route 381 is another main north-south route that inter- sects with Route 711 at Jones Mills near Donegal. Ligonier Valley Trail & Bikeway Feasibility Study — Ligonier, Pennsylvania | 13

Option 1 designates a dedicated bike lane in either direc- tion along Route 711 that would be delineated by pave- ment markings and signage (as per MUTCD and AASHTO) until it reaches the intersection with Boucher Lane.

  • 65. What do sharrows mean for motorists and bicyclists? Motorists • Expect to see bicyclists on the street • Remember to give bicyclists three feet of space when passing • Follow the rules of the road as if there were no sharrows Bicyclists • Use the sharrow to guide where you ride within the lane • Remember not to ride too close to parked cars • Follow the rules of the road as if there were no sharrowsSHARED LANE MARKING: “SHARROW”Sharrows are comprised of an image of a bicycle with aseries of chevrons to indicate that motorists and cyclistsare to share the travel lane. They are used on streets thatare too narrow for conventional bike lanes.Unlike bicycle lanes, sharrows do not designate a particu-lar part of the street for the exclusive use of cyclists. Theyare simply a marking to guide cyclists to the best placeto ride on the road, avoid car doors, and help motoristsexpect to see and share the lane with cyclists.While cyclists are allowed on all public streets, it is im-portant to designate some streets as part of the bikeway Top: Typical plan showing relationship of sharrow to travel andsystem in order to help cyclists safely navigate to their parking lanes (from Seattle Department of Transportation) Bottom: An example of a shared lane pavement marking ordestination. “sharrow” (from Bike Pittsburgh)64 | Ligonier Valley Trail & Bikeway Feasibility Study — Ligonier, Pennsylvania
  • 66. SHARED LANE MARKING: EXAMPLE Sharrows are a relatively simple and inexpensive way to expand and designate a bicycle network as seen in the above example. The sharrow is typically installed 11 feet from the curb, or approximately 4 feet from parked cars. It is intended to indicate where bicyclists should ride to avoid traveling within the door zone of parked cars. It also alerts motor- ists to share the road with bicyclists and conveys that the street is a preferred bike route.Top: Photo after sharrows added to streetBottom: Photo before sharrows(both from Seattle Department of Transportation) Ligonier Valley Trail & Bikeway Feasibility Study — Ligonier, Pennsylvania | 65

We believe there is enough room within the existing ROW for Route 711 to install the shared use path by adjust- ing the striping of the vehicular travel lanes. This should be the first option explored during the implementation phase to determine if cross-sectional elements meet AASHTO Green Book design criteria. Another option is to designate that portion of Route 711, from LC&CC to the Township Building, as a signed shared roadway (“Share the Road”) because it would connect significant uses within the community. A third alternative would be to con- struct a new trail bridge, independent of the Route 711 vehicular bridge that connects LC&CC to Brigade Lane and Alternative Alignment 2. The report has been . • The cross section of Route 711 should not be compromised; the barrier and bike lane should be in addition to the existing cross section. Adding the shared use path and barrier on Route 711 should be further investigated during the implementation phase as noted above. • There will have to be a maintenance agreement including winter maintenance for this bike lane. The Department will not be responsible for maintenance activities. The cost of maintaining the shared use path will need to be further considered before construction of the facility. A reporting system should be established so that route users can alert those responsible about facilities that are in need of maintenance. A contact person who can authorize maintenance work should be designated to receive the reports. • Does the barrier meet the design criteria for the bicycle standards? Height and protection. The barrier should be a minimum of 42 inches high to prevent bicyclists from toppling over it (taken from the AASHTO Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities. 1999). This will be noted on the drawing on page 31.West Route • The crosswalk on Route 30 at the intersection with PA 259 needs considered. If this is going to be a heavy cross- ing, what design features will need mitigation in order to cross safely. The painted crosswalks on both eastbound and westbound Route 30 will be removed from the drawing on page 50 due to the absence of a traffic signal. Users of the shared use path will be alerted of the highway crossing with signs and markings as outlined in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and AASHTO. Likewise, motorists will also be altered using the same standards contained in the MUTCD and AASHTO guidelines.92 | Ligonier Valley Trail & Bikeway Feasibility Study — Ligonier, Pennsylvania
  • 94. East Route • How will the shared-use path be separated from traffic in public ROW until it reaches PA 381? The shared use path is separated from traffic by a 10-foot wide landscaped buffer. There is adequate room to install a 42-inch high vertical barrier if it is determined necessary during the implementation phase. • What happens to the route at PA 381? Shown to just end? Where will the bicyclists continue? The shared use path terminates at Route 381, which is currently designated as a signed shared roadway. Cyclists have the ability to continue to Linn Run State Park. • Is there enough ROW on Route 30 to accommodate this path and the 10’ landscaped path? Yes, we believe there is adequate room to accommodate the shared use path and landscape buffer within the existing ROW for Route 30. This option should be further investigated during the implementation phase. • Any bike or shared-use lane or facility in Public ROW will need a maintenance agreement including winter mainte- nance. The cost of maintaining the shared use path will need to be further considered before construction of the facility. A reporting system should be established so that route users can alert those responsible about facilities that are in need of maintenance. A contact person who can authorize maintenance work should be designated to receive the reports.South Route • Is there enough existing ROW to complete this work? We believe there is enough room within the existing ROW for Route 711 to install the bike lanes by adjusting the striping of the vehicular travel lanes. This should be the first option explored during the implementation phase to determine if cross-sectional elements meet AASHTO Green Book design criteria. Another option is to designate that portion of Route 711, from Route 30 to the Boucher Lane, as a signed shared roadway (“Share the Road”) because it would connect significant uses within the community. We recommend keeping the drawings in the report as-is, and adding text describing the signed shared roadway option. • Does PA 711 meet the requirements to have a shared travel lane? Were crashes, truck traffic, ADT, etc., investi- gated? The collection and/or analysis of traffic data was outside the scope of this report. This work would be included as part of the implementation phase. If it is not possible to install a bike lane, then the route would be designated as a signed shared roadway (“Share the Road”). Ligonier Valley Trail & Bikeway Feasibility Study — Ligonier, Pennsylvania | 93
  • 95. General Overall Comments • Any bike or shared-use lane or facility in Public ROW will need a maintenance agreement including winter mainte- nance. The cost of maintaining the shared use path will need to be further considered before construction of the facility. A reporting system should be established so that route users can alert those responsible about facilities that are in need of maintenance. A contact person who can authorize maintenance work should be designated to receive the reports. • For shared lanes, has there been any investigation for Speeds, ADT, Truck Traffic, crash data investigated to en- sure that this is safe and reasonable to recommend a shared use of the lanes? The collection and/or analysis of traffic data was outside the scope of this report. This work would be included as part of moving forward with any implementation phase. • Do all of the shared use lanes meet the criteria to incorporate on state and local roads? The purpose of designating certain routes as signed shared roadways is because they provide continuity to other bicycle facilities and connect the community to high-demand uses in the area. The proposed routes also meet most of the criteria outlined on page 19 of the AASHTO Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities Routes. In addition, routes will be signed and marked as outlined in MUTCD and AASHTO. It appears that existing roadway shoulders on proposed shared roadways are at least 4 feet wide, the minimum width outlined in AASHTO. Width requirements to accommodate both bicycle and motor vehicles would be confirmed during any implementation phase. Other design upgrades may be deemed necessary to accommodate bike traffic including, but not limited to, bicycle-safe drainage grates, bridge expansion joints, and upgrading paved shoulders. • Has the ROW been investigated along the state routes to ensure that the projected work can be incorporated or will additional ROW be included? At this planning stage, it appears that the work outlined in the report can be done within the existing road ROWs. Additional ROW acquisition is not anticipated at this time.94 | Ligonier Valley Trail & Bikeway Feasibility Study — Ligonier, Pennsylvania
